Tired of seeing @wordpress on your blog’s shared stories on Twitter? Would you rather show your handle instead?

OK, that’s easy. Well, only if you know where to look. Adding your twitter nickname is easy. Finding where to change this setting? That’s the tricky part.

No worries. I have taken some screenshots of both WordPress-dashboard styles (the navigation is slightly different in each) to help navigate.


 1. Sign in to your WordPress blog and get to a dashboard.

2. On the left-nav find “Sharing”

The navigation is slightly different on each dashboard. Here’s images for both.


Gray/Basic Dashboard > Sharing 

1 step

3. Navigate Sharing Settings and add Twitter Name


Gray/Basic Dashboard > Sharing > Sharing Buttons

Once on the Sharing page, click on Sharing Buttons tab.

Then scroll down until you find the Twitter username box.

Now enter your @name, save changes and done.

Green/WPAdmin Dashboard > Sharing > Scroll Down

Once on the Sharing page, scroll down until the Twitter username entry box is visible. 

Then scroll down until you find the Twitter username box.

Now enter your @name, save changes and done.

Now when your blog post is shared, your Twitter name will appear in the tweet.
